As the sparkling smiles of the Strictly Come Dancing winners fade from the screen on Saturday evening, the first people to know just how engrossed the British public were will be a team of engineers in a secret and secure location west of London. "We can tell how much an event is gripping the nation," says Nigel Williams, head of electricity systems operations at the National Grid.
His team plan for weeks ahead so that when the nation heaves itself off the sofa and puts the kettle on, power stations across the country burst into life within seconds to stop the surge in electricity demand turning the lights off. In the national control centre, a cross between space mission control and a city trading floor, one man will watch the »

Earlier this week, Digital Spy was one of a privileged few to attend an advanced screening of this year's Doctor Who Christmas special - Steven Moffat's 'The Time of the Doctor' - which sees Matt Smith's 11th (or is that 13th?) Doctor bow out in spectacular style.
What follows is a preview containing no major spoilers - though a few tantalising teasers lurk within - and only a modest critique. For the full DS verdict on Smith's swansong, check back at 8.30pm on December 25.
In 60 minutes, 'The Time of the Doctor' has an awful lot to accomplish - Moffat is tasked with not only giving Matt Smith a fitting and emotional farewell, but also tying up many of this era's loose ends and incorporating all the usual festive bells and whistles that a viewer expects of Christmas Day telly. »

"Doctor Who" fans are going to get an eyeful of Matt Smith before he regenerates out of his role in "The Time of the Doctor." In some new images released from the Christmas episode, the Doctor somehow loses his clothes while in the Tardis, with Clara (Jenna Coleman) there to witness it all.
Who knows what circumstances lead to a naked Smith prancing around the Tardis, but seeing as how the new Doctor tends to regenerate into whatever clothes his former self was wearing, does this mean Peter Capaldi is going to start his run on the show without pants? That would certainly be a unique way to introduce him.
That telltale yellow glow isn't surrounding the Doctor, so chances are this isn't the regeneration scene. Still, if they were looking to send Smith out with a bang, this is certainly one way to do it.

Now playing in limited release and expanding this weekend is one of the best films of the year: Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Inside Llewyn Davis. The story takes place in the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961, and follows singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) as he struggles with his career and strained personal relationships. Loaded with incredible performances, an all-star cast (featuring Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Adam Driver, Stark Sands and Max Casella), and a fantastic soundtrack (put together by T-Bone Burnett), Inside Llewyn Davis should not be missed. For more on the film, read Matt’s review. At the Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with Carey Mulligan. She talked about how she was cast, what it was like working for the Coen brothers, whether the script changed much, future projects, if she knew Drive would be such a great film during production, »
